Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Research Center (MAISRC)
Thank you to the Pelican Lakes Association
The faculty, staff, and students at MAISRC would like to thank the Pelican Lakes Association for their generous gift of $10,000 to support the Center’s research on zebra mussels. We appreciate PLA’s recognition of the role research can play in helping to address the issues they confront.
“The Pelican Lakes in Crow Wing County are an environmentally wonderful area because of the pristine clear water, the many acres of undeveloped natural shoreline, and the heavily forested areas,” said Dr. Arthur Weaver, president of the Pelican Lakes Association Board of Directors. “The Association is devoted to protecting these irreplaceable natural assets for all to enjoy now and in the future. The major issues facing our lakes right now include the presence of zebra mussels and other aquatic invasive species. We are confident that the research that MAISRC is conducting in this regard is of critical importance and will provide solutions to these problems.” Thank you, Pelican Lakes Association!
